Nwm2021 01

The Nagoya Women’s Marathon has announced that it will increase the prize money for the 2022 race, scheduled on Sunday, March 13, 2022, in Nagoya, Japan to 250,000 USD.

This will make the Nagoya Women’s Marathon 2022 the highest prize paying marathon in the world.

Being the world’s largest women’s marathon, one of the world’s top-level races, and the only women’s race with a World Athletics Platinum Label, the Nagoya Women’s Marathon made the decision aiming for greater heights as a global leader in women’s running. By holding a higher-level racing among some of the fastest women athletes gathered from across the world, the organisers aim to convey to the global audience the wonders of marathons, particularly the talent and outstanding ability of women athletes.

Thanks to the dedication of medical professionals and the cooperation of countless citizens in the world, road races are slowly returning despite the pandemic. By announcing the increase in prize money of the Nagoya Women’s Marathon 2022, the organisers hope to encourage athletes worldwide and send another piece of positive news to the world of long-distance races, mass participation events, and women’s sports.

There remains the possibility that the Japanese government may impose entry restrictions on foreign-based athletes depending on the future infection status around the world.
